Hip-hop emerged from the voices of the unheard. But freedom doesn't ring the same for everyone. Inside all corners of the culture, Black women and queer folk have dealt with the same oppression the music was built to escape. Season 2 of Louder Than A Riot examines who hip-hop marginalizes, and how misogynoir — the specific racist misogyny against Black women — is embedded into the fabric of the culture that we love. From Rico Nasty facing harassment from toxic fans, to Saucy Santana's unapo...

1. Literally One of the Best Podcasts - This is a fantastic podcast! I learned so much in the first season as my family is from St Tammany Parish and I grew up listening to Southern Rap. I’ve been eagerly anticipating the second season and then after two episodes were release NPR announced it was going to be canceled. So disappointing, hopefully NPR reassesses the decision or another podcast company picks them up.
2. I know the gurls don't usually do this… - But I was wondering if maybe y’all could drop episodes a week!?!
I have been waiting for season to drop for far too long. This first episode was everything I needed to get hooked back on. Thank you for putting the time and energy to share these stories that we experience and know are palpable in our communities. Y’all have the platform to share and Y’all are telling it how it is! and keep ‘em coming.
3. An embarrassment to NPR & journalism - This podcast is pathetic. Where’s the accountability? They spend the entire time making excuses and blaming others for the stupid actions of a few. If you’re dumb enough to sing/rap about a crime you committed, I have zero sympathy for you when you end up in jail. The world is better off for it
4. A Fantastic Listen - Louder Than a Riot is a fascinating and important listen about the history of hip hop and mass incarceration in the U.S. Wonderful writing, production, and two great hosts who break down complex ideas about anti-Black racism, artistic expression, and possibilities for liberation.
5. Well Done - Based on the Snap Judgement plug, Just binged the -parter on Bobby Shmurda who I’d never heard of before, Compelling story, well resourced and well reported. However, I was struck in episode by the false dichotomy of the heartbreak of Bryan’s mother and her call for individual accountability from the men who killed her son and the narrator’s squishy recitation of societal and economic “violence” as perhaps excusing their heinous and cowardly actions. I don’t dispute that the SYSTEM is in place, but I didn’t hear enough evidence to support the argument that the SYSTEM was the root cause of this particular tragedy. My prayers go out to Bryan’s mom, girlfriend and brother. I would have liked to know him.
6. Good podcasts bad marketing - I find it very annoying that you use the covers for older podcasts on new ones. More than once you have fooled me and I clicked on one I liked only to find it was one I wasn’t interested in. I think your podcasts are good enough that you don’t need to engage in deception.
7. Victimhood - This is podcast was created for people to victimized themselves to the fullest degree. I’m episode and only a hand full of people take responsibility for their culture and actions. Master p takes responsibility and the female host didn’t seem to like his “harsh” take. Even the Bobby shurmda episode was hard to listen to. You have a kid that died innocently. The host talking about the levels of violence. The system failed him. Blah blah that’s why he’s that why. Bruh shut up, I hate my people. What do y’all be talking about
8. Can I nominate y’all for an award? - Oftentimes when journalists tell “both sides” of a story they end up telling no story at all. But in this podcast, the different perspectives paint a unified, coherent, and complicated picture. The through line is about rampant anti-Blackness of course, but we arrive at that point in so many different ways. Oh yeah, also I learned some stuff about hiphop. :)
The Coolest Podcast In The World. Hosted by Adam22 Watch these interviews on YouTube right here: https://www.youtube.com/nojumper
Release date: 2023-03-25
1. i fw it - tbh i know everything is going on wit the group beef and the group leaving BUT on the other hand I care for the Conversation/Interview with the people I am familiar with and the people I fw.Like tbh i never even used this app for anything but one other podcast (caresha please) and then i found no jumper and they interviewed people that I wanna listen to On top of that they have sooo many interviews on here !!
2. Manipulate interview style - I listened to the Chrisean and blue face interview and I found it to be extremely distasteful. I don’t understand why grown adults want to further excite and already terrible situation. I also didn’t like how one sided sharp is when it comes to blue face and Chrisean. You can tell that sharp already had a negative outlook of chrisean and wanted to use the interview to make her look bad. Definitely a WEIRD interview…
3. Podcast review - This podcast is my favorite because they talk about everything. They bring rappers and other people to share their stories and adventures in their life. The adventures can be from getting into a fight or being jumped. If your a person who likes rap music and like listening to crazy stories I would recommend this podcast for you.
4. Blame Flakko - Too much red pill content these days. Ever since Flakko came on it’s been downhill. Very disappointed in the Nick Fuentes “debate” that wasn’t even a debate because the guys admitted later that they weren’t prepared to push back on his talking points. Sneako also is a person who doesn’t deserve a large platform like this. Shame because I like Adam and the rest of the guys.
5. Disconnected was the best addition. - I think the disconnected show was the best thing added to No Jumper, it has all my favorite employees. Side note: Every episode I watch has a random part towards the end where it will repeat the previous minutes and then continue on to the end of the pod. Not sure if this is a glitch or what but it would be nice if somebody fixed that. Not a huge deal tho just wanted to mention it.
6. Great - This podcast is so open and real. You feel like you’re literally there hanging out with the hosts every week. Although they spend a large portion of the episodes making jokes & poking at each other for fun, they can quickly switch the flip to serious real life topics and dissect issues in there personal lives. Very down to earth. Easily one of my favorites !
Way Up With Angela Yee On Demand!
Release date: 2023-03-24
1. Congrats! - Love Yee! BUT, I think it would be really nice to hear more from Jasmine. I’m not sure what her “role” is on the show but, it would be great to have her answer the same questions as Yee. Like, who is she shining a light on, what she did last night, etc. seems odd to have her there for small talk. We wanna know more!
2. Show and Prove - Love the show but some constructive C. Work on the social media aspect. The pods are dropping after a day or two instead of a few hours after the show. You have four hours of show, but only giving us a piece of the pod. A lot of us are not in our cars all day or on a morning run, and really do not prefer live radio with minute commercial breaks lol. So I work nights and I listen to the pod or May pop over to YouTube for the video. Did the same with the BC. Allllso because most of us probably came over from your former show and you are right behind them, try your best to avoid talking about the same topic of you can help it, I listen to both pods back to back usually. Other than that great show, and love wealth Wednesdays. I think you should have two financial days a week minimum. One can focus on personal finance and the health that goes with it. Keep it up!!
Norah Jones is a multi-GRAMMY winning singer and pianist who loves playing music with people, so she started her own podcast to do just that. Each episode, she sits down with a different guest for impromptu musical collaborations and candid conversation. Her guests come from all walks of life and every musical style and you never know where the songs will take them. So, come hang out in the studio. Norah Jones is Playing Along!
Release date: 2023-02-28
1. Amazing! - I’ll be honest, prior to hearing her on Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, I hardly knew who Norah Jones was. But Conan’s admiration for her made me decide to check out this podcast. Most of what I listen to is history and science, so I didn’t anticipate being IMMEDIATELY enamored of her and her guests. Norah’s genuine love for he friends and what she does is heartwarming. Her voice is seductive (not necessarily in a sexual way) and she chooses such interesting guests. In a scant few episodes she had introduced me to musicians I may otherwise not have heard of, and given me a new appreciation of one I already liked (Mavis Staples).
2. Great Format - Playing Along has great potential to be a big hit as a pod. It reminds me of that great long-time NPR show Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. That show ran for years, and she attracted guests such as Dave Brubeck, Bill Evans, Diana Krall, and…Norah Jones. Norah Jones has the personality to make the show a big success. I like her mix—if it continues past the early days—of stars and lesser known musicians of great talent. I think a stronger trend toward musicians who know the theories and techniques behind what they do will make for more interesting conversations. Not that they want to have a discussion on suspended ths, but sometimes understanding why a tune is powerful or catchy can be very interesting to the audience. In moderation. If you’re a fan of music and how or why it works, this is the show for you. I enjoy it.
3. What I’ve Been Waiting for in a Music Podcast - I’ve been listening to podcasts every day for the last years. This is the first time I’ve ever been moved to write a review. It is equally as powerful for music fans as it is for professional musicians like myself. The Mavis episode…I’ve heard Mavis interviewed many times over the last years. This is by far the best. The most personal, unguarded, uplifting and genuinely beautiful. I give much of the credit to Nora, whose musicianship is just so outstanding. Their mutual adoration for each other can be heard not just in the gushing words, but this effortless harmony connection. Both have such incredible harmony skills and a soul delivery of everything they sing. As an interviewer Nora is a natural. The conversation flows so well into the songs that the listener never touches the ground. And, when it was over I felt, “I just got to experience that.” So thank you, Nora. -LM
4. This podcast feels… - Like a hug from my Grandmother!! It makes me feel so happy. It’s like you’re getting to sit in a cozy studio and watch old friends reminisce and play together. Amazing. And Norah Jones always sound like a straight up angel singing! she makes me tear up and smile happy smiles at the same time. She’s a fantastic interviewer, funny and beyond charming!! We need more feel good like this in the world. Thank you.
5. Simply Delightful - I listened to the Mavis Staples episode first and was just absolutely delighted. Norah asks such insightful questions. I love how Mavis was just having a conversation with Norah and when she would start to praise Norah, Norah would thank her and then flip the conversation back to Mavis. If Norah decides to call her music career quits (May that never happen!) she could easily turn into interviewer! Can’t wait for more episodes!
6. Fun informative and feels like home - This podcast feels so good to listen to. It is everything I need to escape and catch a bit of lightheartedness. It makes me feel warm. I am learning so much! I had never heard of Tank and the Bangers before, but now I can’t turn them off! I am having fun and learning so much about Norah and her guests!
7. Lovely concept and execution of her podcast! - Could listen to Norah read or sing the phone book with her warm voice so for her to have her own podcast is very exciting news! I was excited to see one of my favorite artists, Jeff Tweedy, as her first guest and even more excited that not only would she be interviewing him but also that they would be performing duets of some of his songs! The result is great! A very relaxed and comfortable long form interview between friends and some great versions of some of Jeff's songs and hers as well. Perhaps this will plant two seeds ) that they should do a duets full length of all new material (maybe some covers too) and ) that Jeff should also start a podcast! Looking forward to all the future episodes with various other artists! Fantastic! Well done Norah!
8. Refreshing, Innovative - What a novel and creative project - Thank you, Norah These BTS sessions are timeless. I always believed the best way to complement the time we are given in this world would be through listening to the experiences of others as we create our own and share it with others as well.
In a podcast landscape of news and politics, it’s refreshing to see artists of your caliber join the medium. I’m not in the music industry but it’d seem to me that hearing about the creative process and its multiple side conversations, it’s a reassurance that they also are on the right track.
Apologies I can’t be more objective - it’s Norah Jones Can’t wait to see the new guests, be at the live podcast tour ( ), and get to my first Norah Jones concert
Two Atlanta legends Big Bank and DJ Scream bring you the long awaited BIG FACTS Podcast!
Release date: 2023-03-22
1. Too Real. Respectful Battle of the Sexes? - Everyone is unhinged in their truth on this pod. They build understanding in an exciting way and are cool with guests. I could be wrong, but I notice a lot of their debates following the word become about intimate relationships, gender roles, and sexual politics. I love it. Makes me think about my marriage in a healthy way while contemplating wild perspectives. This show is usually wild fun and always good for a fresh take.
2. Immature and Ignorant - The fact that these grown adults had a year old kid come on this show and admit to robbing people and they laughed and joked about it shows you what’s wrong with this world. Ignorance for likes from grown older people amazes me. This is a disgrace and I don’t know how anyone would listen to these people after seeing that.
3. Great Podcast with Volume issues - I enjoy the podcast but they need to fix the volume. Host and guest often move away from the mic and you can’t hear what’s being said. Which makes it hard to listen to. Post production could likely fix the issue. Otherwise it’s a great podcast with some real subject matter l.
4. Home - I’m a soldier in the U.S. Army and I’m basically a long way from home and I get find people the same kind of people I grew up with . Being from Florida we talk a whole other language than the rest of these of folks . And this show bring me home man . Bring me back to my roots as a jit getting high and getting game from a good of head . Appreciate y’all boy
Award-winning actor Alec Baldwin takes listeners into the lives of artists, policy makers and performers. Alec sidesteps the predictable by going inside the dressing rooms, apartments, and offices of people we want to understand better: Ira Glass, Lena Dunham, David Letterman, Barbara Streisand, Tom Yorke, Chris Rock and others. Hear what happens when an inveterate guest becomes a host.
Release date: 2023-03-07
1. My favorite! The best!!!! - Alec is my favorite podcast interviewer! Every episode I learn something and it’s fascinating. There have been times when I read who was gonna be on the show that I am like that sounds really boring. But it never is! Alex knows the questions to ask and he’s interested in the person or subject matter. Every episode is a delight! I look forward to every one.
2. Always fascinating - Alec Baldwin’s broad interests and insightful intelligence bring out the best in any guest he interviews. Alec’s breadth of knowledge on a wide range of subjects is only matched by his keen sense of interest he has in his subject. Plus, when he’s doing this podcast his wife can’t get pregnant. The poor lady needs a break.
3. Evil - You are an evil man. Here’s the thing, you shot someone and don’t feel guilty. Not your fault. I accidentally weed-whacked a frog once, a decade ago, and I still feel guilty. Never blamed the weed whacker. What kind of privileged monster are you? I used to be a big, big fan, and I’m no MAGA—I can out-liberal you at every turn. But, the lies! And insensitivity. If it was an accident, you should still be on your knees for the rest of your life. You didn’t pull the trigger? Liar: at best. Rot in prison, sweet prince.
4. An interested mind - IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. He has the sexiest voice in podcast land and he is made even more alluring and compelling by his interest in so many different topics and people. He possesses a curiosity with his subjects and has the ability to think and effectively communicate ideas. His interviews are really conversations. Keep it up, Mr. Baldwin! I love your podcast and POV.
5. Not worth a listen. - Alec used to be interesting. His public image has been tarnished by unethical , aggressive and entitled behavior. His wife has been enabled by Alec’s intimidation of people and she has been afforded many opportunities undeserved and based on dishonesty. Can’t unsee the things this family has posted on SM in the aftermath of the killing of a mother to a young son. Just trying to be a good steward of the riches made in Hollywood. Alec needs to be at home raising the children he professes to have an unending commitment to.
6. First Class podcast - I’m a long time listener. Alec’s knowledge and information never ceases to amaze me. I am currently listening to “Ben Steele, American “. A bit of a departure from the usual “Here’s the Thing” interviews this is a fascinating and informative verbal documentary. Outstanding work by Baldwin and staff! Kudos!
7. Please, just stop. - For the love of all things holy, can Alec Baldwin muster enough humility to stop his thirst for attention and adoration? A woman is dead and he doesn’t have the human decency to keep a low profile until the case is settled. He and his wife have taken things to a new level on their Instagram accounts and the public has noticed. Do the world a solid you two and go quietly into the night and take your mini army of carbon footprints with you. Such hypocrites.
8. Very Inauthentic and Arrogant Podcast - Why would I want to listen to an arrogant has-been actor who, for many years, peddled a lie to help his narcissistic and wannabe celebrity wife gain followers and become a momfluencer with lots of sponsors marketing the story of “the Spaniard-Latina WOC / ESL super mummy” ??
SiriusXM's Storme Warren dives into the very beginnings of country music's biggest stars.

One thing that today's biggest artists have in common: They all speak with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about their lives and the stories behind their songs. Hear why he is the interviewer the biggest stars open up to in these candid, in-depth conversations, now available in full on Apple Podcasts.
Release date: 2023-03-17
1. Love this podcast it’s amazing - I love theZane Lowe show it is amazing it is help me fall asleep a lot maybe for the past one or two maybe just half a year but it is amazing and I love it it is not boring I just can’t fall asleep without Noise or something like that I love this it is amazing and Zane I hope you have a great day year or just anytime at all
2. I was raised in a Christian home... - I was raised in a Christian home, and we didn’t listen to “secular” music. Music wasn’t good based on the music or caliber of artistry, but was just based on whether the lyrics agreed with our beliefs or not. I’ve always loved music, and now in my early s I feel like I’ve grown past my upbringing and I’m discovering the joy of many different artists that I never listened to before. I’m playing “catch up.” Zane Lowe’s show is a part of that journey, and though I’ve discovered the podcast very recently, it’s helping to give me an insight into all great music, past and present, and I appreciate having this resource to help me learn what’s good, what treasures there are in music history, and also helping me to learn to evaluate music from a quality perspective and not just a surface/shallow perspective. Thanks Zane from a fellow Kiwi who now lives in Las Vegas!
3. Zane, you talk TOO much! - I love zane’s relationship with so many really great people. I love that he has a level of experience in music that allows him to connect with great artists and even more impressively - he regularly gives advice to artists about life and careers and a lot of the time our fave they hear it and seem to appreciate it. He’s clearly got respect of a lotta great people in music. SO I MEAN THIS WITH LOVE - Zane, bro, you talk WAY TOO DAGGUM MUCH. Artists can’t even get a word in. It’s occasionally cringe my but mostly as a listener you just wish that the artist was able to just finish the thought. Only room for improvement on this podcast and Zane Lowe interviews in general: just take a breath every now and then.
4. / - I enjoyed the real in depth, serious, humorous, and entertaining conversations. We got to really take a look into bits of Fin and Billie. How they produce their music, what drives them to make music, and much more. I personally love Billie and Fin, and almost-if not all- of what they preform and create. I’m very rarely one for podcasts, but this was again, very entertaining.
5. Obsessed - I am a year old mom of two and I’m obsessed with your album? You should see me in a crown is one of my favorites. It should be in a movie! Your voice is incredible and the sound bites you guys use are AWESOME. Love the guys deep voice on Bad guy.....”come here” can’t wait to see what else you create in the future.

1. - I really love this podcast. I listen while I workout. I wish the interviews were more uniform in time ( min or min) so I knew when I could finish one in a sitting. The topics covered are great. I love the amount of laughter and support for other women there is. I wish there was less background noise (especially on Trina’s episode). Overall, it’s fanatic. Literally laugh out loud while working out.
2. Needs work. Constructive criticism. - The show is a great idea . You have big time artists coming on show, you have to think of the guest, most of all the listeners. Starting out I get it , trial by error. All you need is a better mic , or if you’re traveling maybe get a decent recorder with a good mic. If you spend some bucks on the right recorder or mic , it will take away the phantom sounds . And all that background noise and all the buzzing . Put a little bit of work in introduction as well . Maybe a little music, maybe talk about what the show is gonna be and who the guest is . Also it’s not so great when your ads have better production then your show. And they pop up randomly in middle of conversation, maybe time it. So you can say “after this short break we’ll be right back “ or something. If you just maybe use your phone memo recorder and like transfer to your computer. ( idk it’s just not good sound atm) your saying hey listeners, I want you to listen , but I’m not giving you a great experience. Just food for thought . Some things to maybe consider. Because I believe this show has potential to be even wayyyy better! Good luck and please don’t take this the wrong way .just trying to help ya out ..
3. One and Done... - Why is this podcast rated so high, are these fake reviews? I heard the first episode and it was very hard to finish. To be fair, I listen to the Joe Budden Podcast, Need To Know, Here's The Thing, DCMWG, The Read and Daddy Issues and they have all been around for a while with the exception of DCMWG. It's cool Yung Miami trying something new, thats very brave of her but I not gonna continue to listen just because its Yung Miami, you gotta put in work MaMa... Good luck
4. My thoughts - So far on the rd episode I’m in love with caresha and I’m so glad she’s not doing like a weekly thing which keeps it more interesting. Her spark with JT and just everyone she’s interviewed so far. Is just a star rating and not just saying that because she’s Caresha. Only thing I’d say is when her special guest gets off topic get them back on topic. Otherwise LOVE YA
5. Your BIGGEST FAN - Heyyy beautiful!!! I just wanted to say I’m so proud of your show and I have my notification ON so I won’t miss it. I love the podcast and I think it’s super raw, authentic and of course so YOU!!! Continue doing your thang my love because it’s working. Period A fan IG: @Swaggasogood

People’s Party is a weekly interview show hosted by hip-hop legend Talib Kweli. The show features big-name guests exploring hip-hop, culture, and politics.
Release date: 2023-03-20
1. Unique access to unique people - Yo! Talib! Thank you for digging deep into the culture and history with these foundational figures of hip hop. Every podcast inspires me. Thanks to the individuals involved and the positive vibes. This will end up in a library some day. It’s hip hop history, straight from the horses’ mouths.
2. Extraordinary - I love the interviews, the content, the guest, the vibe, everything. I would have given this stars but there’s just thing I don’t love and it’s the cohost. She throws the vibe or the conversation off a lot to me. Seriously this podcast is definitely in the top for me. The research and effort put into interviews is beautiful.
3. Love the Show!!!! Interview Rick Glassman!!!! - You need this dude, he’s a podcast king, and his life story is amazing to boot! He has his own Podcast Take Your Shoes Off (TYSO) and has been on Tigerbelly, Bad Friends, Trash Tuesdays, and many other more… He knows Will Smith Ask about Magic the Gathering cards
get him to rap
then ask him about his autism…
4. too bad host only promotes black men - Love the premise of the show, just wish they had a different host. If you scroll through you’ll see talib focuses on black men. Given his problematic history with women, it’s a bummer he takes no effort to promote or rectify that with this new platform given he’s been banned from other platforms for his misogyny and harassment.
5. A must listen for all hip-hop heads - The thing that sticks out the most for me listening to this pod is Kweli’s skill as an interviewer/conversationalist, which, I think, stems largely from his intellect and gracious demeanor as a host, as well as the breadth/depth of knowledge about hip-hop music and culture he naturally displays while
in conversation with his guests (and Jasmin, who is smart, funny and charming in her own right), easily navigating all manner of topics and experiences discussed with his guests. What’s even more striking to me is how clear it is that Kweli’s knowledge of and respect for hip-hop music/culture is the byproduct of not just his own career as a successful and influential emcee, but also (perhaps to an even greater degree), a life spent as a genuine, hardcore fan/student of the music/culture. A life spent loving, living, breathing and immersing himself in all things hip-hop (as well as music and pop culture generally). Kweli is a presence and personality uniquely qualified to sit down with this incredible, diverse list of emcees/producers/entertainers to make good on the immense potential of this format to deliver thoughtful, revealing, organic conversations - which are a gift (and education) for any hip-hip head. STARS!!!
6. A first row seat into an audio encyclopedia of hip hop culture and the legends it’s created - Thank you Kweli. We the people appreciate what your doing for us. Great conversations, great guests. Excited to be given the opportunity to listen to some of the most influential icons in hip hop and hear stories many haven’t heard before.
7. Pegasus Podcast - Fantastic Podcast overall. Intelligent declarations, and interviews from a true Student of Aristotle. Master Kweli delivers real, in depth conversations, with unique, and interesting guests. The maturity he demonstrates when engaging those with a difference of opinion is especially refreshing. People’s Party continues to climb towards stars. Side note: Entertainment isn’t for everyone. JL is never funny, and easily one of the top worst cohost’s of a best podcast.
8. Grateful - Thanks so much for this awesome podcast and all of the talented guests who have real conversations about important issues related to history and current events. It’s great to hear Talib mark out for people who he is genuinely a fan of . Nothing pretentious or fake at his genuine love of the hip hop culture and all it encapsulates.
Did you miss today’s Ryan’s Roses? Or Second Date Update? Or celebrity interview? Listen to the entire show here every day with Ryan Seacrest, Sisanie, Tanya Rad and Patty Rodriguez.
Release date: 2023-03-24
1. Full show please - Why are we only getting minute clips? Please upload the full shows on a consistent basis and get rid of the clips. I’m not able to listen to the show live but have loved coming to the podcast to listen but now finding it harder and harder to get. Love the show, just want to be able to listen to the whole thing everyday! Thanks
2. Love but fix the podcast version please!!! - Love the morning show and am so happy they created a podcast version on apple, but please fix it. It used to only have full episodes which was great, now it has so many or minute clips added in that it’s almost impossible to find the full show…it never used to be like this but they seem to have changed it about weeks ago
3. Finally! - I’ve been wishing for this exact podcast to exist for years. Listening to y’all all the way from Texas. Love ya, Ryan! My only negative feedback is the constant vaccine talk. Californians are delusional. You’re not going to go to a baby shower because the mom isn’t vaccinated??? shaking my head luckily I can skip over anything vaccine or political on the show.
4. Why only one podcast appearing?? - I was so excited to see that they FINALLY had full shows on a podcast and I could binge listen. Suddenly they are gone and only showing the most current episode. I can’t always listen every day so I’m disappointed that I can’t listen to every show now. Bring them back!! Desperate in WI!
5. Love that I can listen to the whole show! - This show has been our favorite since my youngest started school yrs ago! We always tuned in on the way to school, but during the pandemic and distance learning we really missed it! Now we listen every morning again and I get to catch up on the entire day before during my morning run after drop off! Great positive way to start the day (plus the dose of drama with Ryan’s roses) lol wouldn’t change a thing but sometimes I wish it was longer!
6. Thank God for this - I am so happy about this! Sometimes when I feel a little down I like to turn on on air with Ryan and it cheers me up hearing patty, Sisanie, Tanya, and Ryan talking. In the afternoons sometimes I wished they were on the air for a little pick me up. I love that I can refer to this podcast now for my daily dose of the on air team!

1. If you’re into music and especially vinyl, this show is a must! - Nate Goyer does a super job of cultivating great topics that any music fan can appreciate. He produces an excellent podcast filled with nooks and crannies of insightful information. His interviews with performers and music-related folk are always a joy to listen to. The music and vinyl community is blessed to have Nate and his Vinyl Guide podcast. Thank you, Nate!!
2. A vinyl lover’s DREAM - Nate is hands-down THE best interviewer I’ve ever heard. Strikes a perfect balance between focus on the live of vinyl and collecting and digging deep into the artists behind those LPs we all love so much. Every episode is absolute joy. Cannot recommend The Vinyl Guide enough; if you love rekkids, this is your new home.
3. Killer podcast, wish I’d found it years earlier. - My local shop owner (Dillon @ Noble Records) mentioned this podcast a few months back and wow, I’ve been missing out. I’ve burned through the first episodes and have to say, Nate does an exceptional job keeping the interviews equally informative and entertaining. I’ve been collecting for years and have added a dozen records to my ‘want list’ since discovering the podcast. Cheers Nate, keep it up!
4. Great podcast with great interviews - Nate gets some great interviews and gets artists to show off their record-nerd sides. It’s really fun to hear how musicians and producers think about their own material from that perspective and to hear which albums got them into collecting. I especially love hearing about rare records and the differences in pressings or album art.
5. Unbelievable Guests - I’ve been listening to this podcast for several years now and I’m always amazed at the guests Nate gets from the punk scene. Also, as a Beatles fan those are great episodes and I learn a ton. I think the only thing I can say negative is the way Nate says “Patreon”, hahaha.
6. Can’t believe the content!!! - I’ve just gotten back into Vinyl after a couple decades away. Growing up my father had over k LPs in his collection and spanned everything from Aerosmith to Zappa.... and I mean EVERYTHING! A normal Saturday morning might sound like - Cosmic Debris - Do Fries go with that Shake - Wish you were here - Layla - Freezeframe etc! This podcast has been a wonderful help in my relaunch - week in and I have binged on about episodes so far! Keep up the amazing content !!!
7. All types of music lovers welcome... - I am not someone who collects records for value, I simply value what music does for me. Nate covers material for all kinds on his show. Love cataloging and tracking down valuable rarities? You’ll find material for you here. Like hearing bits anecdotes about your favorite musician’s work from the people that were there? Plenty for you. Love music and being exposed to your latest fix you didn’t know you needed? It’s here too. An excellent production with a personable host. Highly recommended.
8. Enjoying your interviews Nate! - I am a female Zappa fan and I am really loving your interviews with the former band members and the family. You are entertaining and uplifting. I am an ex vinyl collector and have just kept almost all my Zappa and a few more of my other favorite artists. I enjoy your passion for the vinyl!

1. One of my fave podcasts hands down - I love Dan’s ability to bring diverse and timely perspectives to the show while asking deeply insightful questions that engage the audience on so many interesting levels. I’ve learned so much in just a short period of listening. Excited for what Dan has in store for the show in the future!
2. Golden Age Goodness - As a guy who came up in NYC during the late s / early s rap scene, I appreciate the history revisited by Dan, who obviously has an authentic and unique perspective on the culture. But he’s not only a hip hop historian; he’s also a visionary of art, technology and culture who curates other trend setters from across the globe. Salute!
3. Excellent Podcast - So much powerful information in this podcast. You can feel the passion in the episodes because of the way he articulates and goes into extreme detail. It’s changing my perspective on the entertainment business for the better. It’s also answering a lot of questions I had lingering in my mind for a while.
4. “The Champion in Direct, Hip-Hop Corp Talk” - I’ve been following Dan from medium to periodical, to journal, to social platform as I have been honored to delve into his contextual insight of the Hip-Hop Music Business, as it is an industry and economy all onto itself. As a professional-underground-commercially -versatile rap artist myself, I submerge into the angles in which he pitches questions to his guests, and allows the experts to explain the nuisances in a science most consumers are too nose blind and tone deaf to comprehend. But more than that? He’s a representative of Black Talent repping in a space that few can, and probably will, occupy from now and for years to come.
5. Love Trapital! - THANK YOU DAN RUNCIE! I keep coming back to Trapital to learn more about the music industry from the accomplished guests. Dan is great interviewer and a thought leader in the space. His Trapital emails are also gems and are written in a clear and concise way. Please keep doing what you’re doing and let us know how us fans can support your channel more. Thank you!
6. Dan is such a great interviewer! - I am a real estate investor and came across this podcast after a recommendation from a friend who shares my loves for both hip hop and business. Often, those two interests have such polar opposite “voices” - but Dan’s podcast brings those two together for me. The result is magical. Great guests, too!
7. Subject Matter Expert on the Biz of Hip Hop - A good friend of mine put me on this podcast and it took me some time to tap in, but once I did, I couldn’t stop listening! Dan has a talent for pulling out the narratives between lines, connecting it to the culture and then making it make sense. I’m a loyal subscriber and am thankful for the podcast!
8. The Business of Hip-hop DEFINED - If you're looking for in depth business analysis of the hip-hop industry, look no further, Dan Runcie is the king of the game. I've always wanted an MBA Student / Management Consultant style financial analysis for the Hip-hop industry, and now I finally have it. For the full PPT analysis, check Trapital.co
Hi, my name is Cory Wong. This is my podcast. I'm going to talk to your favorite artists as they discuss their personal tricks of the trade, never-before-heard stories, and the proper response when Sinatra wants to peep your master tapes.
Release date: 2023-01-12
1. Well Done, Son - This is a proper interview format podcast. Cory asks good questions with good energy. It’s more than apparent he cares about creativity, musicianship, artistry, and the persons he interviews. At times, non-players may not get the lingo - but I believe anyone can get insight from hearing this pod. Well done!
2. Love This Podcast! - I’ve been listening to Cory’s podcast for a short time. Kind of stumbled upon it actually. Got to tell you, this is one of my favorite go-to’s. Whether your a musician (pro or aspiring) or just someone who appreciates music and wants to learn more about the art and artists, there’s so much to get out of Cory’s interviews and insights. I’m hooked for the long haul!! Thanks for all you do, Cory!!
3. Fantastic - I started listening to this podcast from the beginning. Cory is an excellent host, and the show develops as an ongoing conversation about evolving as artist, finding one’s own unique voice, and approaching the business of music in modern times. His broad range of guests share their insight and candor during excellent, concise conversations. Cory seems like a genuinely nice guy, and it’s easy to imaging sitting in the room with him as a buddy while he talks to guests. His tireless enthusiasm and joyful approach to music and the instrument is refreshing - I’m glad I’ve spent the hours listening. I’ve learned a lot, and there’s a lot of inspiration in these conversations.
4. So happy this podcast exists - Super dope podcast, Cory’s conversation with Joe Satriani is so great filled with tons of great advice from both Cory and Joe. Cory brings an insight and wealth of knowledge about the guitar & music industry that sets this pod apart from anything else I’ve heard. I’ve most definitely found my new favorite podcast, can’t wait for future episodes!

Part memoir, part musical analysis, The Song Is Never Done is a track by track exploration of Walter Martin’s album The Bear. To help us along the way ...

1. Season - I’ve been rocking with this podcast since day . These are the guys I grew up listening to. I love all these stories. So far season the stories feel rushed in a way they weren’t for the st seasons. This season I’ve felt like the stories have been condensed. Hopefully this gets better. Keep the content coming!
2. Thank you - As a middle and high schooler, other than Wu-Tang, no groups impacted me more than Das Efx and Black Moon. To be able to hear both of their stories in one week is incredible. It brought me all the way back. Back in the day information like this wasn’t available so to be able to finally hear some of the back stories is incredible. Keep up the great work and thank you for shining a light on some of the best that ever did it!
3. Hip Hop History at its Finest - Golden Era hip hop is like the classic rock genre. Much like classic rock, this era of hip hop is filled with its own stories of triumphs, drama, falls, and rebirths. Fresh Era has provided a platform for these unheard stories to be heard, appreciated, and reminisced. Sit back and just listen…
4. Young cats don’t know… but now they can. - As someone who will one day be sitting in a rocking chair saying how music isn’t like it was back in my days (heck, I’ve already been saying that for years) this is a well-produced trip down memory lane. That it’s made with reverence by heads that weren’t there for that era gives me hope for my rapidly approaching “old man yells at cloud” days.
5. Nostalgia at its best! - I just binged the Chubb Rock, Dres snd Young MC episodes and want more. Extremely well produced and entertaining with solid editorial perspective placing cultural context to the times. Plus I get a deep dive into the lives of unsung heroes like Dres. Looking forward to the next episode.

1. So incredibly helpful - I take an hour every day to listen to advice from Ari on his podcasts/YouTube channel about how I can improve the business side of my music. I’ve paid for two of his courses on Ari’s Take Academy and LOVE all the knowledge I’ve learned from him and the instructors that help him. % recommend Ari to anyone looking to “make it” in the music industry, whatever that looks like for you :)
2. Love it - Bro is asking all the right questions and has beneficial and priceless advice to impart on to the community. Every morning without fail, I plug my $ air pod pros in to my ears and absorb. The whole world is going about there day, but for whole hour, I am completely and utterly tuned into what ari has to say. Plus the dude has an enjoyable and pleasant voice, all the information is easily digestible and I am truly thankful bro.
3. Ari reads your mind - Ari does an excellent job interviewing each of his guests, asking them the pressure point questions that were humming in the back of your mind but didn’t make it to your consciousness. He is an excellent journalist & his years in this industry cut through the noise to what really matters. You can’t get this info anywhere else! Thank you Ari
4. Valuable insight for arstists - I’ve been making music for over twenty years. I’ve read dozens of dozens of books and periodicals. In all of my years of struggling to make it as an artist, I’ve learned more from Ari’s Take in just a few months than all of these years combined. Ari helps us navigate the constantly changing music business. He literally gives us the game.
5. PinknoiseEntpure - Best music business podcast I’ve ever heard. The guests are amazing. One stop shop for all informational independent artists needs. If you are an aspiring music producer, music supervision, performing artist, songwriter, music publisher, music manager, and so many other aspects in the music business, this is the podcast for you. Keep up the great work
6. Thank you! - I have thoroughly enjoyed these conversations. I’ve gone back to the beginning and working my way through all of them. The knowledge and quality can’t be overstated. Ari is such as asset to our community, and beyond. Ari, I’m a singer songwriter who has been making a consistent part-time living off of royalties since off of one Craigslist submission. I have taken time away for other careers but am reapplying myself as a songwriter, producer, collaborator. Your pod fortifies my belief in myself and my goal to make this my Full Time living. Cheers, Jennifer McNutt
7. Not worth the listens anymore. - He’s just posting reruns. Either post new content or take a break from posting. Ari used to feel like he was helping artists. Now he just talks over his guests, hogs speaking time on the podcasts, and feels money hungry and a bit like a scam artist preying on people who wants to get better and succeed.
8. Dear Ari - Dear Ari, I wanted to reach out and express my gratitude for all of the time and effort you have gone through researching and revealing the ever evolving music business’s inherent trends and potential opportunities. Your heart cover (I said hard cover go Siri) and audiobook “Everything You Need To Know About The New Music Business” has directly impacted my debut album charting on billboard in . Additionally, you’re down to earth and interactive podcast continues to pave the way with clarity for me while gearing up to release “Sensitive” on July rd. Sending you blessings of continued health happiness, success and all your hearts desires come true for the best. Thank you. Mayer Malik @mayermalik

Join Scott Devine and Ian Allison from SBL as they dissect every aspect to being a bass player - professional or hobbyist - from basses and gear hacks, to musicianship and gig tips, all the way to mental health and what the future might hold for the music industry.
Release date: 2023-03-23
1. Insightful and Fun - Such a good vibe that works really well on this show. I love the insights that are so specific and give you ideas of what to work on with your bass playing. The interviews are really great as well. Definitely should give it a listen if you play bass and if you don’t, it is still great content.
2. Not just a bass podcast - It’s more than a bass podcast, it’s a music podcast. It’s a musician’s podcast. It’s an entertaining conversation between two guys who like to nerd out over not just basses but groove, other musicians, and music in general. You even hear genuine conversations about life. Scott and Ian arr a fun duo to hang out with, check it out!
3. Best Bass Show Ever - This show rules. I’m stoked the sbl team has started the podcast and Ian is now a regular. The solo shows are awesome too. Sbl taught me so much over they years and kept me exited about playing, practice and learning all I can about this wonderful instrument. I’ve gone from a total beginner, just keeping rhythm on an open E, to incorporating jazz progressions and chord tones in my parts in a live hardcore deathmetal band. The show has opened me up to new music, new techniques, new gear, epic gigging advice, recording know how, permission to screw with FX and be a sound weirdo, to be a bass nerd etc and simply made it available to dive in. Just hit play. Thanks sbl
4. / - Absolutely love the conversation. Great musicians bringing all their musical knowledge to the table is HUGE for me staying motivated as a musician. So much CC knowledge here, and even more importantly there is so much experiential wisdom about life and how to live it. Thank you for doing this Scott and Ian! You guys are great.
5. Love this show - Just the nature of what I listen to can get pretty heavy, political, and sometimes dark. It is so nice to listen to Ian and Scott ( insanely talented musicians) discuss all things bass in a way that is entertaining, informative, and most importantly for me apolitical and completely neutral and inclusive of everyone that enjoys the bass guitar.
6. The Scott’s Bass Lessons podcast is a blast! - If you are a human who enjoys other humans, you’ll have fun just hanging out with Scott and Ian and picking up on life lessons they’ve learned (often, the hard way!) If you are any kind of musician, you’ll learn a lot about how to go deeper and get better at your instrument. And if you are a bass player, or just love bass guitar…this is the place to be every week! These guys have such a good time chattering about life, and about bass. A lot of good bass geekiness, and a great hang!
7. Not just for bass players - Disclosure: I’m a paid member of Scott’s Bass Lessons. If you are just tired of listening to podcasts about murder and crime and vulgarity and partisan politics, stop listening to those podcasts. Listen to this one instead, even if you are not a bass player. Scott and Ian have a contagious enthusiasm for life, and it spills over into all kinds of stuff (including their main passion: electric bass). This podcast is a bright light in a world that sometimes feels like it’s getting darker.
8. Scott and Ian now have too many friends - Scott and Ian are so genuine that they seem like a personal friend of mine. You have to love their passion (and addiction) in geeking out over all things bass. I am guessing Scott and Ian have been approached by complete strangers treating them as friends and the random person just starts talking away. Great podcast.

2. I love it! - Great interviews with all my fav celebs. I love it! He asks great questions, and overall it’s a great interview! I agree with others that the AJR ones are the best. I have a request……can you bring Dua Lipa, OneRepublic, Bebe Rexha, Ava Max, Katy Perry, and Jon Bellion? Please? Anyways I love it so much and listen to it all the time! -AJR biggest fan! Edit: I just realized you did bring some of those people. So sorry! But…. I did notice they were a long time ago. So maybe could you bring them on soon? Thanks!
3. Review for the Ariana Grande Interviews - I’ve been a fan of Ariana Grande since I was little because she played my favorite character (Cat Valentine) from one of my favorite shows (Victorious). From then, I became a HUGE fan of hers and just so happened to find she did three interviews with Zach Sang on Apple Podcasts. Feminist QUEEN!! The most memorable moment from the podcasts would have to be her talking about the purpose of her hit song God Is A Woman in the “Ariana Grande Talks Sweetener, Pete Davidson, and Nicki Minaj” episode. I was shocked to hear that GIAW was originally not Ariana’s idea, it was a sample track her team made that she was going to feature on and then sell to a male rapper. Once she heard the sample, she fell in love with the idea and convinced her team to allow her to finish writing it. The next morning, she returned to the studio, recorded the song and Ariana’s team immediately saw the potential the song had and gave the song to Ariana. Ari talked about how GIAW is not about god being a woman, it is about the power women hold and their ability to create life. As a teenage girl in society, I felt this song was really inspiring. The Real Ariana Grande If I got to ask the host, Zach Sang, a question, it would be, “Being a close friend of Ariana’s, what is a side of her the media does not capture?”. The media tends to portray Ari as a famous, rich, and super talented popstar, but behind all that only her close friends and family know what she is like. I think the podcast should cover where the profit Ariana makes from her albums goes towards. Many people do not know that Ariana is a VERY generous person when it comes to donations. She has given many of her fans thousands of dollars to pay off their student loan debt and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood. I think this topic would be appropriate for this podcast because it would show the public Ari has a big heart when it comes to helping others and she does not pocket every dollar she makes off her music. Instead, she gives back to her fans as well as her community.
The Fretboard Journal magazine's weekly podcast, where we interview legendary guitarists, luthiers, and much more.
Release date: 2023-03-17
1. Listen already! Bigsby episode is excellent! - II’ve been listening for years, and the episode on the recently ‘found’ late Bigsby guitar was awesome- so many stories, Jason, the always excellent host, just let them run- thank you, it was so good. I could have listened for another hours. Thanks!
2. World of music - This is an excellent podcast which has led me down a rabbit hole of musical discovery. Everything Jason does is the highest quality. I subscribed to the magazine after getting a glimpse of the care he and the staff give to what they do and I was not disappointed- it is a gorgeous piece of work and I look forward to the next issue. All the podcasts in the FJ network seem to have great people and it makes listening to anything they discuss a true pleasure. Thank you for everything you do Jason- it is obviously a labor of love done to the highest degree.
3. If you like guitar….. - I’ve been a subscriber of the print edition since the first issue. The podcast is done with the same quality and attention to detail I’ve come to expect from FJ . If you enjoy guitar or just music in general you owe it to yourself to check out the entire family of FJ associated podcasts. Keep em coming Jason I appreciate all you do !
4. Rudy Pensa - Another great podcast with a name that has been lurking in the background for too long. Rudy is very knowledgeable, and for Chinery’s family to entrust the Blue Guitar collection to him says a lot. I remember when the Blue Guitars first came into the forefront, making Scott an instant legend. To think of the collection being sold as one, if it happens, would be a gift to the world. I remember R.C. Allen talking about the luthiers who received the blue stain, and how he longed to make one. He did, but it’s not the same hue. Kudos to Jason and the gang for putting this information out there. We need more GUITARS!!!
5. The Premier Guitar Podcast - Fretboard Journal is without a doubt the premier guitar-related podcast. It is always informative and entertaining. If you don't subscribe to the print publicaiton - you should. It is the highest quality print publication devoted to guitars, guitar builders, and recording artists.
6. Always look forward to the FJ podcast! - Ive been listening to Jason on the FJ podcast for many years now. Without a doubt it’s one of the most well done podcasts out there. I’ve been introduced to so many artists, products, and instrument builders through this podcast. Thanks for the quality programming Jason!
7. Pharmaceutical Propaganda or guitar podcast? - I was really looking forward to listening to episode with the author of Kalamazoo gals. Unfortunately I had to shut it off because the first to minutes were all about the Covid crisis and how everyone should go out and get their vaccine. Well, I respect this may be the opinion of the host and guest, I find it to be inappropriate subject matter on a podcast that supposed to be about guitars and music. Bummer.
8. Play guitar? This should be your jam. - I worked with Jason years ago at Tower Records Pulse magazine, where I remember him building his own Theremin from a kit, but I had no idea what a brilliant guitar guy he is. I'm working my way backward through this library of podcasts, and I've gotta say that if you play guitar and you want to go deeper on your relationship with your instrument, this is a great way to do that. Thoroughly enjoying these podcasts. Nesbitt Bireley approves!
Joe Pug hosts a monthly conversation with one of today's best songwriters.
Release date: 2023-03-17
1. Favorite Show Ever! - I absolutely love this show! As a songwriter myself, I’m always mesmerized by the interviews.. mainly because Joe Pug asks the perfect questions! And then he follows up with more questions, going deeper, and leading to fascinating conversations that never seem cliche. He also has a great sense of humor, and makes me laugh. Highly recommend!
2. Excellent! - My nd review because you’re so good Joe. I started out looking for writing insights. And heard many. But after so many episodes, now just can’t wait to hear Joe’s kickoff jokes, humorous insights & observations, and the curated poems, so apt and inspiring. In addition to your prodigious musical talents, you have superb talent as a congenial host and conversationalist. Always happy when I see new episodes in my feed, like an old friend arriving at the door. Thanks for making this show. Cheers!
3. What a find! - I heard a song by Joe Pug on my favorite Radio Station (WUMB ) and loved it instantly. From there, I went to his website which is how I ended up finding the podcast! Listened to the Nickie Blum episode and loved it. Joe, not only are you a gifted musician, you’re also a fantastic interviewer. Can’t wait to listen to some more episodes-right after I check out Nickie Bluhm!
4. So good! - Joe Pug approaches these interviews with other songwriters with such interest and curiosity. You can’t help but be drawn into the conversation. Not only is Joe a talented musician and songwriter, he is an incredibly thoughtful. I hope he continues these interviews for many years to come!
5. The best of its kind - I got to see Joe play live this past fall in Levon Helm’s studio, and he was great. But that was a one-time thing. Knowing that I can look forward to a new show each week, in which Joe invariably takes his guest along for a deep dive into the mystical / mythical world of songwriting, is invaluable. My advice to every aspiring songwriter in the universe (yes, I number myself one): LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST!
6. Worth the investment - Valuable information for writers and musicians, entertaining and just plain stocked with a list of talented artists. I’m pretty amazed that Joe puts the effort into this songwriting podcast for free. I’ve learned a bunch and love to jump over to pull up the artists music if I haven’t heard them before . All The Working Songwriter listeners should go over to Patreon and give Joe at least a couple of bucks! It’s the first time I did but I would like him to keep going with this!.. Andrea in Alaska
7. Great Podcast - Super interesting and enjoyable. I love to listen to good music but am the farthest thing from a musician or songwriter. Joe is a great interviewer and his interactions with his guests provide a view into the songwriting process and the songwriter’s life that’s quite enlightening.
8. Thank You - Thank you Joe for this podcast. You’ve introduced me to the music of many wonderful artists as you raise the curtain on their processes. Along the way, you give us glimpses into your own musical path. Also love the poetry breaks in mid-podcasts almost as much as your creative Bandzoogle ads!
Join Tom Mullen for a look back at when emo was an unknown word, its relevance now and speaks to those deeply involved with the emo/punk/hardcore/post-hardcore scene.
Release date: 2023-03-13
1. Deeper Dive into Unique Tunes - Thank you Mullen for keeping these unique bands in the public realm. I especially like and John’s POV for all us kiddos growing up and wanting something different than what pop radio was playing. What he described was how I felt growing up in “the heartland” This Fightin Irish/ Christian fan is a fan of “weird” music that should be kept relevant now to appreciate the evolution of music history. Keep up the good work!
2. Same narrative every episode - Great guests on this podcast but the narrative of “eyeliner mall pop” ruined emo is exhausting and repeated mechanically on every episode. There’s also a grandiose and overripe level of “I was at that show back in ‘” talk that borders on flatulence, and while the host’s questions are usually thoughtful and unique to the guests, I personally find the content more of an attempt to insert himself into the scene than an objective look at the era of emo. Yet, still an entertaining show and probably the best podcast on the subject currently.
3. Excellent podcast! - Tom is a treasure trove of knowledge about the emo/indie scene and these in-depth conversations are unlike interviews you’ll hear anywhere else. Whether you were around in the nineties or are a recent convert to this world, I can’t recommend this podcast enough. Maybe most importantly, it also provides a vehicle for songwriters who have been historically overlooked by the mainstream press. Keep up the great work, Tom!
4. Been an amazing ride - I’ve been listening to the show since , and every episode provides so much perspective into a band or an artist’s work. I’ve been amazed by how much my perspective changes on the music after listening to an episode and connect with it on a much deeper level. Between this and the books, Tom is the best source for all things Emo. Keep it up man!
5. New subscriber - Man, I found this podcast just now after listening to the Ian Metzger episode. What a great episode. I miss that band and love the gentle hits too. Thanks for the nice reminder of one of my favorite bands. You got another fan of the podcast bc of it. Thanks and can’t wait to start listening to all the episodes.
6. Great show... keep doing what you’re doing! - I really enjoy listening to your podcast! As a dude who grew up in the s emo scene I had the pleasure of seeing most of your guests play in their hay day. It’s great to take a trip down memory lane each episode. In the early s I stopped following emo as it really started taking a turn for the worst with the whole “scene kids” My Chemical Romance garbage. It’s cool to hear what some of the OG emo bands went on to do after I lost interest. I really got into Album Leaf after your episode. If possible please interview Brandon (or whoever if he’s not available) from Boys Life. They were one of my favorite bands.
7. Insert Review Title Here - It’s rare that people are TRULY excited and passionate about the music they love these days. Even more so if your favorite music is Emo. Never too apologetic, except for maybe the name of his show, Tom is such a knowledgeable and infectious host. Honestly the best part is he’s a true fan. These interviews, more often than not, sound like old friends catching up. Reminds me of many nights discussing music with my best friends. Bonus points for turning me onto some great “new to me” music.
8. Representation please - This podcast would be way better if it were more inclusive and nil on the implicit sexism. It took over episodes to finally get a woman on the podcast. Another didn’t get in for months after that. Comments are littered throughout every episode, implicitly reminding the listener how much of a “boys club” the music scene was/is. If you can find a guitarist from a band that broke up years ago and has been working in finance ever since, how hard can it be to find a woman who is still active in the music community? I really wanted to love this podcast. I just couldn’t listen to it anymore.

1. JUAN EP IS LIFE - Been a LOYAL listener since years ago years ago I haven’t missed a episode since. It’s one of the things I look forward to every week. Its literally my favorite podcast even when they’re talking about nothing they’re just a great entertaining duo giving you the realness. After a few road trips my wife even likes JUAN EP now she thinks CIPHA is hilarious. She still doesn’t know I’m a patron though. Hahaha
2. Simply the best Hip Hop podcast! - I look forward to seeing new episodes pop up on Tuesdays because I know I’ll laugh, be informed and celebrate one of the greatest art forms. Two individuals who have demonstrated their love for the art and have a gift for sharing stories and bringing the on the most interesting contributors to the genre. From current events to things that happened years ago… Juan Ep Is Life
3. Been listening since years ago - Real talk. Cipha Sounds & Peter Rosenberg invented the hiphop podcast which evolved out of their morning show on Hot years ago. But now the show is like % hiphop and more just like hanging with your friends that are mad funny, insightful, and entertaining, but they never let you get a word in. So you sit there and listen to them wax poetic about their hang-ups, career goals, neuroses, and failures, while they occasionally name-drop their celebrity friends and dope lives. And it’s cool because you know them since way back and truly happy for them and want to see them shine. Peter Rosenberg sounds exactly like an old friend from BITD and Cipha looks like my cousin that is both a badman DJ that had THE TUNNEL poppin’ and a comedian that’s quick and witty and he’ll have you rolling. I tell all my peoples to listen and once they do, they come back. All respect due to the mandem, Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg keep pushing, building and adding on. ::BOMB DROP:: ONE
4. life - I wonder if Rosenberg understands he is a hypocrite. It’s ok, we all are but he talks so hard, cuts ppl off when talking about his ppl but also when others are trying to explain a perspective he may not be familiar with… I just went every one to stop speaking negatively about groups you don’t belong to. Puba said one thing Rosenberg heard what he wanted and went from there….
5. The reason why I listen to podcasts - I really enjoyed hearing Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg on Hot . So much so I went to see them live at the McDonald’s in Times Square! When I found out they had a podcast Juan Epstein, I was hooked! I even paid for the VIP seats at their last Live Show at the Hammerstein Ballroom! Because of their podcast (all of their iterations of Juan Ep) it opened me up to the world of podcasts in general. I’m a big fan of this podcast and I’m not even a hip hop head!
Every week on Performance Today™, Bruce Adolphe re-writes a familiar tune in the style of a classical composer. We get one of our listeners on the phone, and our caller listens to Bruce play his Piano Puzzler™. They then try to do two things: name the hidden tune, and name the composer whose style Bruce is mimicking. From American Public Media.
Release date: 2023-03-15
1. what a happy new discovery! - The Piano Puzzler has been going on for years, and I did not know about it. I wish I could find every single episode! I enjoy the new compositions from Bruce each week. I enjoy finding the tune, which is easy for me, and guessing the composer, which is not so easy. even for those not trained in music, but who love classical music, this is a winner.
2. So challenging, fun and interesting! - This is a great way to really learn how to listen with sensitivity and removing your pre-conceptions. I also learn a lot about techniques and styles of great composers. The host is so friendly and warm and Bruce’s compositions stand o. Their own ad masterpieces! On critique: things are getting predictable: lots of Beetles, Gershwin, folk songs, etc. please try mixing it up and maybe bringing in some modern pop from the s, s, , onto today to draw in a younger audience.
3. Best musical game going - These are great fun. Bruce Adolphe has the musical-combinatorial wit of Peter Schickele and the teacher soul of Karl Haas. The puzzlers are just challenging enough and Bruce is great at helping listeners figure it out. It helps if you know musicals and the Great American Songbook and the Beatles. Also children’s songs and, once in a while, vintage TV show themes.
4. Big Fan of the (New?!?!?) Format - This past week's Puzzler included a selection from a Beethoven Sonata and for the first time since I've been listening, the Podcast included the Sonata it was quoting from in its entirety after the game. I hope this was not just a technical error and represents a change in format for the show as this would be a welcome edition to any already excellent show!
5. Music fans will love Piano Puzzler - The Piano Puzzler is fun for everyone. Bruce and Fred are great. They keep the Puzzler challenging, but they aren't elitists. This isn't something only music scholars will enjoy. My mother has studied and played the piano almost her entire life. I love music, but can't play an instrument. And we both like the Piano Puzzler.
6. Where have all the puzzlers gone? - This program is excellent. My teenage son and I have listened to these on the way into school and really enjoy the challenge! They get the mind going in the AM. But there haven't been any in quite awhile! PLEASE, PLEASE bring these back! Some of us can't listen when they are broadcasted.
7. A Great Puzzle for the Ears - I love this podcast-- it's a mix of amazing talent and fun twists on something familiar. I find it hard to catch this segment on my local NPR, so I was thrilled to find it on a podcast. I hope it will return soon! It was one of my favorites! Great job! Hope to hear you again soon!
8. piano puzzler - This is my favorite podcast. Music, suspense, brain game, challenge, early morning wake-up--it has it all and more. The hosts are easy to listen to and never embarrass the players--I'd even give it a try. Where are they? There must be many music lovers who cherish this brief respite from daily grind. Where is it? I would do anything to persuade my local music station, MPR, to subscribe to it.

1. Please keep the podcasts coming! - Love this podcast! Franco’s fun loving, not afraid to be real, dig deep and be a goof. This podcast is like a therapy session and has a unique take on mental health challenges of artists. I now play Eye of the Tiger every time I have to pump myself up for a job interview. Thanks Andy!
2. Amazing podcast about much more than music - Andy doesn’t seem to hold anything back his personal life including the struggles. His raw honestly makes for compelling interviews and deep, real conversations without forgetting the humor. You can tell he puts a ton of work into the show. Love it! You will too.
3. To the Critics, Much Appreciation Andy - “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt
4. Good guests, interviews need work though - While listening to the Billy Strings interview, the interviewer constantly talked over him and led him towards certain answers... it was extremely annoying and happened for most of the episode. If this is his norm, I won’t be interested in any more - he needs to improve his skills on interviewing.
5. New Howard Stern - I didn’t really know Andy or his music - just that he shows up and plays with lots of my favorite bands and now he’s interviewing them.A couple months back I decided to take a listen to his podcast and I’m hooked. He somehow is able to pull deep and difficult stories out of his guests and shares is own intimate fears, stresses, hangups etc. I love his interview style - reminds me of Howard Stern but less obnoxious. This is my new favorite podcast and now I’m getting in the UN. Thanks for being real, Andy. Here’s to hoping your success continues for years to come.
6. Great interview with Lyle - Great interview but… Andy needs to let people finish speaking. He’s very enthusiastic (understandably) but jumps in the middle of replies which kinda distracts you from what Lyle was talking about. Other than that very informative and very cool to learn about Lyle and his story.
7. Truly Saving My World... - This is possibly the podcast to end all podcasts especially in the Jam world. After watching Andy Frasco and The UN live on Jam Cruise, I delved deep into this podcast. The honesty and openness by the host and guests, keep me on the edge of my seat. As my friend, Vince Herman told me, “Andy Frasco is the biggest thing on the scene ever” and this podcast is proof that hard work and determination pay off. Great sound editing, music and all around production. Looking forward to many more episodes in the future! Keep pushing the envelope. Stay raw, honest and real.
8. AAHHHHHH - Andy mf'in Frasco. You inspire me to say the least. This podcast has opened up a world to me that I want to be a part of forever. You, Yeti, every guest you have on here are so genuine, creative, intelligent, absolutely hilarious, inspiring, the list goes on. Not to mention the stories you guys are telling. This is by far my favorite podcast, please never stop. Your words are my favorite. Keep it goin forever you beatiful freak of nature.
Join Björk in conversations with collaborators about her sound experiences. In the podcast you’ll learn about the moods, timbers, and tempos that vibrate through each album.
Release date: 2022-10-06
1. Wonderful - I’ll go ahead and admit—I’ve tried quite a few times to get into Bjork’s catalog because of her reputation as an artist, her close association with other acts I adore, and a desire to expand my tastes. I hadn’t been grabbed by what I listened to, but thru this Podcast I have found a way in. What a world we live in.
2. One of the few - The word ‘artist’ gets thrown around a lot to describe singers, but watching and hearing her over the years has been one of the defining artistic throughlines in my life. Björk is one of the few performers on the international stage who is truly an artist. Listening to this series of podcasts has only deepened my appreciation of her sound and music. So much love. Thank you for this.
3. Björk is my HERO - I have been a long time fan of Björk! I love hearing all of in depth thoughts and creative insights that went into each album. What she was going through during the time, and how beautifully it all came together. I could listen to her talk for days and days!! Thank you for putting this out!!! I absolutely love it!
4. An Absolute Must Listen - Björk has long been an exciting and extremely talented musician who I have loved entirely. But it wasn’t until I listened to this podcast, where she carefully and passionately explains her work in great detail, that I realized I only knew a fraction of her genius. This podcast is such a delight, I have listened to all of the episodes more than a few times, I just can’t get enough. By far, this is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to and is one that I will listen to again and again.
5. Thank you Bjork and team! - As a millennial woman whose mom was a fan, I’ve literally been listening to Bjork my entire life. To hear the history of these albums, and Bjork’s journey as an artist and a human to give them context, has been a gift. To hear her describe the themes of nature, rural/urban introvert/extrovert duality, and the feminist lens of her career has made me realize that so much of what I feel when I listen to her music is right and true. Bjork is a once in a lifetime artist- there’s no one like her. What a joy to hear her discuss her work in this format. Thank you to everyone involved!
6. FAVORITE PODCAST EVER - wow this is just a joy to listen to. bjork makes some of my all time favorite music and her mind is so fascinating to me. hearing her talk about and analyze her work process puts such a smile on my face. and the way the music from the albums weaves through the episodes is OUTSTANDING can't wait for the rest of these episodes
7. Porn for my ears - I’ve been a fan of Bjork since I was . I started with Debut and worked my way chronologically through every album. Each one made such an impact on my life and inspired me as an artist in so many ways. To hear her speak about her inspirations, thoughts and emotions for each album is everything I could ever want or need. She is even more inspiring than I imagined. If you need some warmth in your soul, listen. Thank you Bjork and the producers for taking a deep dive into the mind and process of the best artist of all time. I am your forever fan and grateful for your contributions to my life and the world at large.

Release date: 2023-03-13
1. a top five podcast - I listen to podcasts all week during work. Music, comedy, buddhist crap, some random true cime stuff...I'm all over the place. that said, Dean Delray and Marc Maron are the two I look forward to every week. Dean has a very personable style and you can tell his guests genuinelyenjoy the conversation. dig into some of the deeper episodes and you'll find quite a few names that maybe you haven't heard in a while but have played a major role in our lives. Especially us gen X rockers. candles lit!
2. Calling all fans of rock and roll and positivity! - I found Dean’s podcast through Instagram if I remember correctly. Dean is a fan of a lot of the bands and music that I am so, I instantly connected with this podcast. But, on my way through I realized that he talks to musicians and comics that I hadn’t known anything about and became fans of them because of the podcast. Dean asks really great questions and has a positive vibe throughout his shows. If you’re into music or comedy at any level or genre, I can’t recommend this podcast enough.-Snakes
3. Dear Dean, - Well…I had considered Patagonia until realizing I’d have to start exercising competitively and develop eating restrictions… Oh, not to mention an extensive knowledge of all the sciences and maths a guy could shake a stick at… Salut—you dumb bastards… -Warmth-Chocolate-Furs- -Les Couchon-
4. Let There Be Talk - My favorite podcast, period. Amazing for comedy and music. Dean Delray is always positive and has a nuanced way of getting great stories from his guests. The last three podcasts (Mike Miley, Paul Stanley, and John Mayer) have been absolutely incredible. The best podcast hands down.
5. I learn stuff - I always learn something interesting. Great interview style. Dean comes prepared. I appreciate the episodes don’t end on a trail of ads. They just end. Thanks for the company. . Anton Newcombe! No way! Such good memories. Only got to see them once - great band BJM. Yesssss! Woo hoo sweet!
6. No Scuff Dean - I’ve been a fan of podcasts since the mid-’s, but I never had a favorite podcaster until Dean Delray came along. Dude is a class act who treats his guests with dignity and respect as he approaches each topic with contagious enthusiasm and a deep sense of curiosity. Keep the candles lit!
7. Moose Hunting In Portland - Well Dean you met the challenge stoically! You actually made one of the blandest rock stars ever, Tommy Shaw, a little interesting. Next assignment: Interview the bathroom attendant at Dagmar's Disco. With your boundless enthusiasm and natural positivity you can even make that a great time!! Thanks for all your great work!!, Jerry LaBuck
8. Mind Blown - I found the podcast VIA the interviews with the AC/DC guys. They were my gateway drug into Rock and Roll. Thanks to Dean and his passion, my musical boundaries have expanded exponentially. What more could a listener ask for? Great podcast, fascinating guests, and a good guy hosting. Ride On!
